Facts on Bullying


  This Webquest is designed to help students understand bullying. They will explore statistics on bullying, the types of bullying, why people bully others, the negative effects, and resolutions to stop bullying.
  Your task is to work in groups of 3 and research bullying. Each student is required to bring together 5-6 facts about each component. The first student will gather facts on why people bully others, the second student will gather facts about the negative effects on bullying, and the third student will gather facts on resolutions to stop bullying. Explain your facts! As a group, investigate the different types of bullying and explain each one. Also provide some statistics about bullying. You will then put all the facts together and create a PowerPoint presentation as a group effort. You must provide information on 10-15 slides and include an example of bullying through a video on one of the slides.
